Victaulic has introduced the Vortex® 500 Fire Suppression System, designed specifically for information technology spaces such as data rooms and server spaces. This innovative technology utilizes both water and nitrogen in a combined suspension to both cool the hazard area and remove the oxygen that sustains the fire using high velocity and low pressure. Fire Suppression system

The swirling distribution fills the hazard space at 40 mph and quickly extinguishes the fire with little to no water presence. The Victaulic Vortex 500 system extends the boundaries of existing technologies providing supreme protection and fire suppression with limited residual moisture, no toxic chemicals, and full design flexibility. The system can be utilized in a sealed or open space with no requirement of room integrity and can be rapidly reset after discharge to minimize facility downtime. Additionally, the system integrates with alarm and detection systems as well as facility security technology, and can activate immediately upon detection of a fire without having to wait for evacuation.
